After every feed burp the baby for about 20 minutes. When you r awake you can keep baby in side position or on tummy. At night you can burp by lying baby on urself in reclining position for 30 min. If baby is gaining weight then these vomiting are harmless, otherwise see a pediatrician.

HB can be improved without supplements. She should eat green leafy veggies and red veggies like tomatoes, carrot etc. These veggies can be given as soup also. Instead of spending on medicines, let them these veggies.

Most diarrheas are self limiting. Wait a while, continue giving ORS, Zinc 20 mg daily for 14 days, continue feeding banana, rice/dahi based diet and do strict hand washing to maintain hygiene. If there is no fever or vomiting, there is nothing to worry about.
